In this two-part webcast series, recorded at California Alliance-member agency Family Builders in Alameda County, Dr. Gary Mallon speaks with presenters who offer a variety of perspectives on issues of sexual orientation and gender identity and expression in child welfare. Family Builders is an LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning) affirming organization that works to provide permanent families for children and youth in the foster care system through a number of different programs and services, with a focus on permanency for older youth.

Part 1: Youth, Parent and Worker Perspectives – Feb. 4, 2014, 12-1 p.m.

In the second webcast, Dr. Mallon speaks with Jill Jacobs, the executive director of Family Builders, and Mia Buckner-Preston, program manager, Placement and Transition Services, Alameda County Social Services Agency.
